Midway is a western novel written by the talented, well-accomplished and award-winning author Tell Cotten. Recently I discovered Cotten’s Landon series and I was impressed by how many books there are in the series (there are currently ten with Midway being the latest) and was also impressed by how many awards Cotten has won for his literature! Tell Cotten is clearly a well-accomplished author who has written a series that many readers love, and I notice this thanks to the wealth of positive reviews each book has on Amazon! I was eager to read Midway, and I admit I got my hopes up, I was expecting a lot from the book, and I hate when I get my hopes up to only be disappointed… however! Do not worry book lovers because I did not experience this with Midway. Oh no, Midway, thrilled, captivated and entertained me from the very start thanks to the action-packed story, laces of humor and Cotten’s phenomenal literature that kept me hooked and captivated until the very end. Readers who love western novels are going to adore Midway, but if you do not typically read westerns but love action and adventure and being introduced to many fascinating characters then Midway is the novel for you! If you need more convincing though please continue to read to learn more about this stellar book!
Midway is an incredible novel that will introduce the reader to the dynamic duo, Cooper Landon and Yancy Landon, brothers who always have each other’s backs. The reader has followed this duo (I believe) throughout the previous books however I have not read the previous books (yet!) and decided to read Midway as a standalone and I never once struggled to catch up. This is because from the start Tell Cotten introduces his reader to the primary characters in the story and informs the reader of who everybody is through Cooper’s narration and I admit I was impressed by this! I am impressed because it shows readers that Cotten is dedicated to the reader’s experience and ensuring that they are never confused or left behind. Anyway! On with the discussion of the plot. As I was writing the reader will be introduced to Cooper and Yancy, and throughout the book the reader will follow them on their journey. The reader will learn about the brothers and will soon learn that Yancy wants to get married however certain events are preventing this and this is the premise of this story. Throughout the day Cooper and Yancy will become entangled in a crazy but thrilling plot and what happens is truly entertaining and should not be missed
The story of Midway was one that I loved from start to finish. What I found most impressive about Midway was the author’s ability to hook his reader quickly and keep them captivated until the very end. Midway is most certainly a fast-paced novel, and I love this approach in literature! I love when an author decides to take the fast approach because it ensures the reader will never be bored and will always be entertained.
Midway is a story I would define as the perfect western novel and a classic western tale. I love western novels and movies and speaking of movies… why is Midway not one or at least a tv series?! The book has the perfect components of a story adapted for the screen, and I believe this because the book has a steady, streamlined plot, enthralling characters with perfect narration and dramatic breathe-taking moments that will move its readers on more way than one occasion.
Tell Cotton is an author whose literature I admire, one quality I admire about Cotten is the fact that he is brazen with his writing. A lot of authors shy away from violence in literature, and if they do they usually tone it down but I love how Cotten said no screw that! I will write my book how I wish and that is a quality I admire so much. This shows us readers that Cotten is a risk taker and an author who is prepared to take risks for the pleasure and entertainment of his readers; this is a quality I admire in an author, so it is safe to say that Cotten will always have a reader in me now!
As I was reading Midway all I kept saying to myself was ‘ok, now this is a brilliant western novel,’ finally, I knew that I would not be disappointed with a western book because I was in capable hands. Cotten manages to flawlessly keep his readers entertained from beginning to end thanks to his dramatic storyline and phenomenal twists and turns that will have readers shocked and enthralled so please do not miss out book lovers!
Overall Midway is a superb, addictive and thrilling book that will keep readers on the edge of their seat I, of course, have to award the story a magnificent five stars! So book lovers, if you are looking to get lost in a western, action adventure story that is full of heart then Midway is for you!
